Story

Mughal garden carpet design creatively originated in 637 A.D. The carpet was designed to give the king an illusion of the spring, in the months of winter. You can observe, the carpet consists of nine different types of blocks. Each block represents the garden motif(s) of that era.

Out of these 9 blocks:

  • 2 blocks represent the 'weeping willow plant'
  • 1 block represents the 'tree of life' (in abstract form)
  • 1 block represents the 'tree of life' in the highly decorated style with a flower and arch
  • 1 block represents the inverted lotus
  • 2 blocks represent the 'Millefleurs' design. Where Mille means thousand and Fleurs means flowers, that means a thousand flowers motif.
  • 1 block represents the 'R' symbol of paisley design
  • 1 block represents the branch of a tree

All these (or types of) blocks put together to give an illusion of the garden during the spring season. Also, the Mughal garden carpet was used for floor and wall decoration for the king.
